K.. Found one hen lying in the corner of the pasture.. figured it was the hawk that I had been trying to scare away.. She was fine.. dead.. but nothing really wrong, maybe a few pecks here and there but that could've been from the other chickens.. Then, 2 nights later , I awoke around 4 in the morn to some clucking.. now., my Roo starts to wake us all at around 4:30, so , I thought maybe he was getting a head start, but , when I awoke and went out to water and feed..my poor, poor Pretty Roo was dead, along with his favorite hen... laying in the chicken yard... with no visible injuries!!!!! What am I dealing with here!????? It makes me sad to lose my chickens, but I honestly would feel better if what was killing them was actually getting a meal out of them. p.s. this summer I had 7 baby chicks and only 1 survived. they would go into this brush pile right outside of the fence.. and completely disappear.. I saw it happen with my own 2 eyes!!!!!. I even went out there and kicked and moved the brush around, found nothing, and they never returned!!! So, maybe something small is trying to get everything but is never successful???? but my Roo was BIG!!!.. I'm at a loss!.. Any ideas fellow predator victims???
